The 2010 Privacy, Security, and Trust (PST) conference will be held in Ottawa this year, August 17 – 19. I will be giving a half-day tutorial on Usable Security.
The tutorial will consist of two parts: Part 1 covers an overview of Usable Security, presents relevant design principles, highlights areas where Usable Security differs from standard human-computer interaction, and discusses active research areas. Part 2 includes heuristic evaluations, cognitive walk-throughs, and different types of user studies. Discussion of user studies will include defining the experimental protocol and tasks, performing usability and statistical analysis, conducting practical security analysis, and getting ethics approval for the study.
